FROM THE RECIPE MAKER: You may also substitute unmarinaded sliced avocados in the place of cucumbers when in a bind or for a different twist.

Found the hummus to be a far too salty. Had to add tahini, oil, lemon juice to cut it. I like the idea, though.
Hummus was the only thing that I made, I didn't mean to revamp the recipe, but the main ingredient is so expensive at 8.00 a jar, so I used already made garlic hummus. I added it to the food processor along with 1 full bunch of cilantro and about 1/4 teaspoon chipole powder and 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and a pinch of salt and mixed. It was so simple and tasted just like Panera's . My son loves it, saids it taste better!
This was rather bland hummus. I added more cilantro and paprika, but it still was salty and otherwise tasteless.
Very reminiscent of "p-bread". I didn't really change anything, except I did the marinated veggies called for + avocado slices. And I added only half of the salt called for in the hummus. This one is a keeper, great weeknight dinner.
Yummy! Great fillng lunch! I did leave the tahini and feta cheese off, to make a lower fat version. Plus I am not a big fan of how tahinni paste changes the flavor of hummus. Added less fresh cilantro so as not to over power the whole sandwich; glad I did. Plus I didn't notice until too late the hummus spread called for minced garlic, and garlic powder. Would have added more minced and no garlic powder. Other than those small tweaks, I loved this recipe!
this is just like penera's veggy sandwich but the cucumbers are marinated. you could make this easier and its just as wonderful with plane sliced cucumbers.
I make just the hummus and always have some on hand around our house. We eat it on a rgular basis with toasted pita points. It makes a great snack for my 2-year-old.
